Vietnam however is also a country with a long history and ancient traditions. It has many historic attractions and old temples.
Ha Long Bay is situated in north Vietnam round a 120 kilometer long coast line and is literally translated as “Bay of Descending Dragons”. The top tourist attraction in Vietnam, Ha Long Bay features thousands of islands, each topped with thick jungle vegetation, forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars. Several of the islands are hollow, with enormous caves, others islands include lakes and some support floating villages of fishermen.
Based on an abundance of fresh seafood and vegetables, Vietnam’s cuisine varies from region to region and features elements of Chinese, Thai, French and Japanese. The national dish is pho, a soup of beef or chicken served with vegetables, rice noodles and various sauces and herbs. In addition to Vietnamese and Asian foods, French baguettes and pastries are common as well.
A country heavily burdened by wars, foreign occupations and civil discord in the 20th century, Vietnam has emerged in recent decades as a reunified nation with plenty of tourist appeal from booming modern cities to colonial towns, beach resorts, traditional villages, archaeological sites and otherworldly islands.
